Paris House is an elegant and truly unique restaurant set in the stunning 22 acre deer park of the Woburn Estate in Bedfordshire. Michelin recommended, and the proud holder of 3AA rosettes, it is the perfect setting to enjoy exciting food, fabulous wines and Great British Hospitality.
Paris House was originally built in 1878 as part of The Paris International Exhibition called ‘The Streets of Nations’ on the Rue des Nations in Paris. It was boarded on each side by 28 pavilions representing 28 countries. The 9th Duke of Bedford fell in love with the building, had it dismantled, shipped piece by piece and rebuilt in the stunning grounds of Woburn Abbey. On arrival at Woburn, its fascinating history continued, playing its part as a tonsil hospital, staff accommodation and a bolt hole for Winston Churchill when he was at Bletchley before becoming a restaurant in 1983.
The new Paris House opened under the 10 in 8 Group in 2010 under the culinary leadership of Executive Chef, Phil Fanning. In 2014 Phil and his wife Claire took ownership of the restaurant. A full refurbishment of kitchen and dining rooms last year has injected new life into Paris House and brought it back to its former glory.
Paris House offers 6, 8 & 10 course seasonal tasting menus, as well as our Sentaku a la carte menu. We also offer private dining experiences, masterclasses, a Chef’s Table set in the main kitchen and the opportunity to take exclusive use of the whole restaurant for parties, weddings or events.
This week sees the arrival of our new Autumn Menu – always a favourite with our regulars. Our seasonal tasting menus change 5 times a year and celebrate the very best seasonal ingredients.
